Marty Being Coded in a Classroom

Coding

Marty the Robot is designed to make learning about computer science and coding a fun and engaging experience. From introducing screen-free programming in pre-school, right through to university, Marty is a flexible learning tool that grows with your students.

Introduce your students to computational thinking with fun activities, then ease the jump to real world programming languages through a familiar platform.

Mathematics

Marty links to mathematics learning by creating practical opportunities. From estimating distance and angles, walking the perimeter of shapes, responding to different conditional statements, based on a range of numerical values – the possibilities are endless.

Additionally, more advanced learners can trigger events by coding loops that make use of counters or timers, which reinforces an understanding of duration and units of time.

Literature & Language

Marty is a great stimulus for imaginative and informative writing. Young children who shy away from fiction, find that having a character that can perform their story is exciting and rewarding.

Marty is a great stimulus for imaginative and informative writing. Young children who shy away from fiction, find that having a character that can perform their story is exciting and rewarding.

Social & Emotional Learning

Robots are particularly suitable for engaging children with special educational needs: children on the spectrum respond well to the clear, consistent interactions that robots can provide.

As Marty is a humanoid robot, children form an instant connection. Marty provides an opportunity to develop communication skills and provide support for children who are keen to express their feelings and emotions with him. They often see Marty as a friend and part of the class.

Expose learners to situations that rely on communication and cooperation in order to achieve success. Paired or group programming opportunities are a regular part of a developer’s schedule. Encouraging the skills that are necessary for working as a member of a team are essential in today’s STEAM environments.
